I don't wanna slow down.
You go for seconds and days
I live for moments to say
That I may never get a second chance
Don't throw it away
Living for dollars and dimes
They'll all diminish in time
Oh let that motion come crashing
Like a plane from the sky
It was a long ride down the east coast
In a city can't keep
Could you keep up on your feet?
And I was struck down by the west coast
It was a quarter to three but I don't do sleep

Follow the freeway
Break the routine
Cuz everything is second to your dreams
If this is the green light
Take what you need
And break out of this hospital scene
I'm running through a stop sign
Cutting out the break lights
I don't want to slow slow slow slow down down
I'm running through a stop sign
Living so it feels right
I don't want to slow slow slow slow down down
Don't wanna slow it down

Thought I'd give impatience a try
Got a little enveloped in time
Cuz I watch you come and watch it go
And it don't seem right
Living for speed limit signs
Ignore and cross every line
Gotta let emotion take you over 20 miles at a time

Follow the freeway
Break the routine
Cuz Everything is second to your dreams
If this is the green light
Take what you need
And break out of this hospital scene
I'm running through a stop sign
Cutting out the break lights
I don't wanna slow slow slow slow down down
I'm running through a stop sign
Living so it feels right
I don't want to slow slow slow slow down down
Don't wanna slow it down

I'm running through stop sign
Got the world on my side
No break lights feeling more than alive
But it's so bright see the city shine on shine on tonight tonight
I'm running through stop sign
Got the world on my side
No break lights feeling more than alive
But it's so bright city shine on tonight shine on shine on tonight tonight
Shine on Shine on tonight

Follow the freeway
Break the routine
Cuz Everything is second to your dreams
If this is the green light
Take what you need
And break out of this hospital scene
I'm running through a stop sign
Cutting out the break lights
I don't wanna slow slow slow slow down down
I'm running through a stop sign
Living so it feels right
I don't want to slow slow slow slow down down
Don't wanna slow it down
I'm running through a stop sign
Countin up the break lights
I don't wanna slow slow slow slow down down
I'm running through a stop sign
Living so it feels right
I don't want to slow slow slow slow down down
Don't wanna slow it down slow it down slow it down
